Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival announced Tuesday that there will be live, in-person concerts held at The Farm property in nearby Manchester, Tennessee beginning in May.

Upcoming performances include Billy Strings, Jon Pardi and The Avett Brothers in what Bonnaroo is calling “Concerts On The Farm.”

Strings will perform Friday, May 28 and Jon Pardi will perform on Saturday, May 29. Meanwhile, the Avett Brothers will perform over July 4 weekend – Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 2-4. Tickets will be sold in 4-person pods and shows will be “socially distanced.”

In the meantime, Bonnaroo organizers are still pushing the City of Manchester to expand the farm into the city limits, which is currently in the county. Manchester Mayor Marilyn Howard told partner station WMSR that negotiations are ongoing.

Bonnaroo tickets go on sale Friday, March 19. Ticket details here.
